We hope you enjoy the 2 new uplifting and monumental sculptures of skylarks at Peacock Meadows.
Installation of chosen public art
The first sculptures for Jennett’s Park community have now been installed.
Kerry Lemon’s flying skylarks are in Peacock Meadows. Her artwork reflects the natural character of the site, as it depicts the beautiful birds that are known to nest in the meadows. A series of discrete bat habitats have been integrated into the structures. This enhances the biodiversity of the site and creates a symbiotic relationship between the work and its local ecology.
These new sculptures are being provided for the enjoyment of the local community. They are funded by the developers, as part of their obligation to provide public art works across the area.
Residents have helped to choose and refine the designs for the new public art. This is through a consultation run by the council, and a series of community engagement events and activities organised by the artists. Kerry Lemon’s smaller flying skylarks sculpture is called ‘Melody Rocket’, following a naming competition run with local schools.
The sculptures for Fulmar Square and Jennett’s Hill are due for installation in spring 2023.
